Our friends at Apple, down at the other end of the San Francisco Bay had a big event this morning! A group of us here at CreativeLive sat in one of our studios and watched it all go down on our big screen. Coffee in hand, laptops on laps, we were ready for some hot new products from Apple. Most of us sitting in our studio had already seen leaks of new Apple products from various different sources. But regardless of that, we bought into the Apple hype, drank the Kool-Aid, and were glued to the screen.

The event kicked off with a beautiful video highlighting the amazing new circular Apple Park and Steve Jobs Theater.

Tim Cook dove into info about the new campus and all of the state of the art tech and design that went into the creation of the amazing place. We learned all about the new Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple TV 4k. But what we’re here to share is the new Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone X (10). The clear superstar of the show is the uber high-end iPhone X. The new phone has a bezel-less design, Super OLED screen, and new 3D face-scanning tech.
